Photo Catch Up part 2: Just Add Water

in family, kids


Once Summer officially arrived, we scheduled a week long trip to the beach!!

I. Love. The. Beach.
So we loaded up in daddy’s pathfinder and headed on down to PCB, Florida with the windows and sunroof open and the radio blasting some U2 and Ray LaMontagne!!


This little girl is on mission!!


I grew up spending my summers at PCB and we’ve taken our children pretty much every summer of their lives and this was the FIRST time we’ve ever taken them to the jetties at St. Andrews park.

They enjoyed it but we had to get back out on the “real” beach the next day.
And then we hit up our favorite marine park while we were there….Gulf World.

Back on the beach flying our kites HIGH!


This is taken from the beach house swing on the back porch.  It’s a relaxing view!

As usual, we got our season passes to Water World so we could spend some time in the waves even when we weren’t at the beach.

We had the MOST fun this year spending our time at WW with some great friends!!

We love Water World.  Author Henry de Vere Stacpool writes, “There is no elixir like nature.”  Being outside in the fresh air does a body good!


We conquered ALL the slides this year!!  Even the Great White!!  I did it one time and one time only!!  No free falling from up high for me!!

This was my most favorite way to spend my summer days!  My husband handed down his kindle to me so I was able to enjoy all of Jane Austen’s novels for free!!

Whenever we weren’t at the beach or the pool and we just wanted to get out of the house, we drove over to our favorite hang out, Barnes and Noble.  We participated in their summer reading program so everybody got some free books!!  YAY for free!!

This is pretty much our summer in pictures.  Throw in some visiting family, a trip to Birmingham for check ups, chiropractor visits for Ruthie and some Thirty-One parties and that’s it!!

I can tell that the earth has shifted and the next season is on the way.  It will be slam packed with trips, school Community Bible Study, football and FUN!!
Thanks for going through the Seasons With The Sewells!!
